I am so excited about this overnight coastal hike!
Day 1- We will begin at Crystal Cove State Park and hike the shoreline down to the Crystal Cove Historic cottages. These are cottages from the 1930’s-1950’s that are being restored and is a step back in time. We will continue to Laguna Beach where we will see tide pools and isolated coves. We continue south to Dana Point where we have a campsite at Doheny State Beach for the night. Some parts of this section will be on the shoreline and others on the road depending upon the tide. The mileage for day 1 is 14.1 miles.

Day 2- we will leave our beautiful campsite and head to San Clemente. Today’s hike is on the shoreline. We will end at the San Clemente Pier and celebrate at the Fisherman’s Restaurant on the pier. Day 2 mileage is 6.2 miles.
